STATEMENT OF OBJECT AND REASONS

 

There has been a demand for imposing a ceiling on urban property also, especially after the imposition of a ceiling on agricultural lands by the State Governments. With the growth of population and increasing urbanization, a need for orderly development of urban area has also been felt. It is, therefore, considered necessary to take measures for exercising social control over the scarce resource of urban land with a view to ensuring its equitable distribution amongst the various sections of society and also avoiding speculative transactions relating to land in urban agglomerations.

With a view to ensuring uniformity in approach Government of India addressed the State Governments in this regard, eleven States have so far passed resolutions under Article 252(1) of the Constitution empowering Parliament to undertake legislation in this behalf. The present proposal is to enact a parliamentary legislation in pursuance of these resolutions.

The Bill is intended to achieve the following objectives :

(i) to prevent concentration of urban property in the hands of a few persons and speculation and profiteering therein;

(ii) to bring about socialization of urban land in urban agglomerations to subserve the common good by ensuring its equitable distribution;

(iii) to discourage construction of luxury housing leading to conspicuous consumption of scarce building materials and to ensure the equitable utilisation of such materials; and

(iv) to secure orderly urbanization. The Bill mainly provides for the following :

(i) Imposition of a ceiling on both ownership and possession of vacant land in urban agglomerations, the ceiling being on a graded basis according to the classification of the .urhajrj agglomeration;

(ii) acquisition of the excess vacant land by the State Government with powers to dispose of the vacant land to subserve the common good;

(iii) payment of an amount for the acquisition of the excess vacant land, in cash and in bonds;

(iv) granting exemptions in respect of certain specific categories of vacant land;

(v)  regulating the transfer of vacant land within the ceiling limit;

(vi) regulating the transfer of urban or urbanizable land with and building (whether constructed before or after the commencement of the proposed legislation) for a period of 10 years from the commencement of the legislation of the construction of the building, whichever is later;

(vii) restricting the plinth area for the construction of future residential buildings; and

(viii)  other procedural and miscellaneous matters.

COMMENTS

 

Once exemption is granted under Section 20; it is not permissible for any other authority to require to exemptee to obtain an order of conversion of that land for non-agricultural purposes.1

Where a land was classified as agricultural land by the Tahsildar under the A. P. Land Reforms Act and the same was corroborated by the report of the Special Dy. Collector and further the land with a number of fruit bearing trees, was in possession of the tenant, the said land cannot be treated as 'vacant land1 and therefore it has to be excluded from the provisions of the Act.2

COMMENTS

 

Obligation to file statement under the Act arises when a person comes to hold any vacant land is excess of the ceiling limit. It would all depend on the facts and circumstances of each case.1 The crucial date for determination, of excess land in possession of the declarant is the date of declaration and the question of intestate or testamentary succession to his property by his L.R.s. would not affect the same.2

SCHEDULE — II

[See Section 11(2)]

Principles for Determination of the

Net Average Annual Income

1.   The competent authority shall first determine the gross income actually derived by the holder of the vacant land acquired during the period of five consecutive years referred to in clause (a) of sub-section (1) of section 11 including any income from any produce derived from cultivation of the land during the said period.

2.   For such determination the competent authority may-

(a)  hold any local inquiry and obtain, if necessary, certified copies of extracts from the property tax assessment books of the municipal or other local authority concerned showing the rental value of such land;

(b)  estimate the income from any produce from such land, after holding such local inquiry and taking such evidence as it thinks fit and after giving an opportunity to the person concerned of being heard in the matter

.3. The net average annual income referred to in clause (a) of sub-section (1) of section 11 shall be sixty per cent, of the average annual gross income which shall be one-fifth of the gross income during the five consecutive years as determined by the competent authority under paragraph 1.

4. Forty per cent, of the gross annual income referred to above shall not be taken into consideration in determining the net average annual income but shall be deducted in lieu of the expenditure which the holder of the vacant land would normally incur for payment of any tax to the municipal or other local authority and for collection and other charges including cultivation charges.

(i) the holder of the vacant lands, and

(ii) all other persons, so far as may be known, who have, or are likely to have, any claim to, or interest in the ownership, or possession, or both, of the vacant lands, by sending the same by registered post addressed to the person concerned—

(i) in the case of the holder of the vacant lands, to his address as given in the statement filed in pursuance of sub-section (1) of section 6, and

(ii) in  the  case  of other person  at  their last known addresses.

(b)  Where the draft statement and the notice are returned as refused by the addressee, the same shall be deemed to have been duly served on such person.

Draft statement not to be served on all interested persons :—If a person could not be said to be an aggrieved person under section 33(1) of the Central Act, he would not be entitled to notice under Rule 5(2) of the rules. The requirement of notice under Rule 5(2) of the Rules must be tested with reference to the nature of the adverse interest the person has, who is required to the nature of the adverse interest the person has, who is required to be given notice. State differently, if a person has no adverse interest vis-a-vis that of the declarant, he is not entitled to notice.

Person interested :—When a transfer converted by section 4(4)(a) of the Central Act is liable to be ignored for purposes of the Act, the Society cannot contend that it is entitled for a notice as required under the Rules as a 'person interested'. The land in question was sought to be transferred after 17-2-1975 under an unregistered ante dated agreement of sale which cannot create any right or interest in favour of the alleged transferee-society. Durga Society cannot take shelter under the decree of the Civil Court in O.S.No.208/91 as the same is noe est in law as per Section 42 of the Central Act. Though a suit for specific performance is maintainable against the declarant, the same has to be ignored for purpose of the Act under section 4(4)(a) of the Central Act and the land so transferred has to be computed, for arriving at the excess vacant land held by the declarant. Hence the society cannot contend that it is entitled for a notice as required under Rules as a 'person interested'.

6.   Manner of publication of notification giving particulars of vacant lands :—The notification under sub-section (1) of section 10 shall be published for the information of the general public, in addition to the publication to be made in the Official Gazette of the State concerned, also in the following manner, namely :

(a)  by affixing copies of the notification in a conspicuous place in the office of the competent authority; and

'[(b) by affixing copies of the notification in a conspicuous place in the office of the District Collector, Tehsildar and Municipal Commissioner within the local limits of whose jurisdiction the vacant land to which the notification relates is situated :

Provided that where such vacant land is situated within the local limits of the jurisdiction of more than one District Collector, Tehsildar or Municipal Commissioner, the notification shall be affixed in a conspicuous place in the offices of all such District Collectors, Tehsildars or Municipal Commissioners.

Explanation 1:—For the purposes of this rule "Municipal Commissioner" means the Chief Executive Officer by whatever name called of any municipal corporation, municipal committee or board, a town area committee, a notified area committee or cantonment board, as the case may be.]

Sir,

I am to inform you that I held vacant land situated within the jurisdiction of the following competent authorities within the State/States of……………………… — I have already filed a statement (copy enclosed) under sub-section (2) of section 6 before the competent authority (indicate which competent authority).

THE URBAN LAND (CEILING & REGULATION)

ACT, 1976, POLICY GUIDELINES

GOVERNMENT OF ANDHRA PRADESH

ABSTRACT

Urban Land (Ceiling & Regulation) Act, 1976 – Allotment of excess lands under Section 23 of the Act which are already under occupation of 3rd parties – Policy guidelines – Issued.

REVENUE (U.C.I) DEPARTMENT

G.O. Ms. No. 455                                                 Dated : 29-7-2002.

Read the following :

1.      G.O. Ms. No. 840, Revenue (UC.II) Department, Dated : 16-6-1982.

2.     Judgement of High Court of A.P. in W.P. No. 19344/1995 and batch, dated: 3-2-1997.

ORDER

Orders were issued in the G.O. 1st read above creating a centralised pool of excess vacant lands taken over by Government under the provisions of Urban land (Ceiling Regulation) Act, 1976 and indicating the priorities for alloting such excess vacant lands, after meeting the needs of the Government Departments,

2. It has come to the notice of Government that the excess land holders themselves or their successors or other interested persons have been questioning the determination of exess land, on various grounds resulting in continuous litigation even for decades. There have also been several instances of such persons protracting the litigation by filing Appeals/W.Ps. etc. on one ground or the other and obtaining stay orders. Taking advantage of such long drawn litigations, in many cases the excess land holders have resorted to sell the excess land to 3rd parties by executing a variety of documents and entering into transactions unknown to the law or illegal under the law. While doing so, the fact that such land has been declared surplus already or is the subject matter of pending proceedings before the statutory authorities under the Act or before the Courts of Law in respect of the such lands has been concealed by the excess landholders or their successors. Many person, driven by the need for a plot of land and to have a shelter of their own, have innocently purchased such excess lands through registered or unregistered documents and also built houses with or without the requisite permissions. Such sales are null and void in terms of the provisions of section 5(3) and 10(4) of the Act. When the authorities attempt to take possession of the excess land after conclusion of all long drawn litigation, it is noticed in many cases that the excess land on ground is already occupied and covered by structures. Fresh problems have arisen.

3. When possession of excess land was taken physically, either with structures or by demolishing structures raised thereon, a fresh round of

litigation commenced.   The High Court of Andhra Pradesh has dealt with these aspects in detail in its orders 2nd read above and gave certain directions.

4. The Government while keeping in view the observations of High Court and after careful consideration of the issue of occupation of excess land by third parties (i.e., other than the declarants/excess land holders or their successors) and taking into account all ground realities and the practical aspects of the problem and difficulties encountered in the strict enforcement of the law and bearing in mind the fact that the Urban Land (Ceiling and Regulation) Act, 1976 is an expropriatory law, have, as a matter of policy, decided to allot the excess lands to such respective third parties in occupation U/s.23 of the Act, subject to the following conditions:

(a)       (i)   The allotment shall be considered where the excess land

already vested with Government U/s. 10(3) of the Act free from all encumbrances and the excess lands that may so vest with them in future.

(ii) In cases where the lands applied for allotment are not covered by any declaration filed, the competent authority shall get the statements filed, if so required under the Act by issuing notices under section 6(2), and then take further action to determine surplus or otherwise. In case of declaring surplus, further action shall be taken upto the stage of vesting of surplus land in Government U/s. 10(3) and only thereafter applications received for allotment in respect of such surplus lands shall be dealt with in accordance with these orders.

(b)    The allotment shall be subject to withdrawal of all litigations filed either by the occupant of excess land, or the excess land holder, or any other interested person and pending before any Court or Authority relating to the excess land as on the date of this G.O.

(c)    The excess lands covered by Appeals/W.Ps/W. As/SLPs or any other suit or proceedings including land grab cases filed by Government and pending before any Court or Authority shall be considered for allotment if applied for under these orders only after such cases are finally disposed of by such Court or Authority and the Government or other party deciding not to carry such order in further appeal or the Government deciding to withdraw litigations in any case.

(d)    The allotment shall be subject to payment of amount to Government at the rates indicated separately for each agglomeration in Schedule -I to this order.

(e)    Allotment under these orders shall be confined to :

(i) Excess land in the possession of occupier, (other than the excess land holder or his successors) where such possession is evidenced by a registered document of purchase from the excess land holder or person claiming through him/her regardless of the fact of such land being covered by a structure or not.

(ii) Excess land in the possession of occupier, (other than the excess land holder or his successors) on which there is already a structure, though the possession is not supported by any registered document of purchase. "Structure" for the purpose of this G.O. shall include any construction which is constituted with walls and covered with a roof of RCC/Titles/A.C. Sheets/Zinc Sheets or tubular structure but does not include a hut or a shed without walls. In Guntur and Vijayawada and Visakhapatnam agglomerations structures with walls and covered with roof of palmyhra leaves traditionally may be considered as structure.

(f)     In cases covered by clause (e)(i) above, the year of registered document based on which the occupant/applicant came into possession shall be considered for determining the time periods of possession and then for calculating the amount payable as per the rates indicated in Schedule-I to this order;

(g)    In cases covered by clause (e)(ii) above, the year of coming into possession shall be the earliest of the years with reference to the dates of any or all of the following primary documents (From Sl.No.l to 4) pertaining to the structure existing on the excess land and for determining the time periods of possession and then to calculate the amount payable with reference to the rates indicated in schedule I to this order.  The documents at Sl.No.5 &6 below are to be considered as supporting documents alone filing of which is optional. Filing of one of these documents has to be necessarily supported with one of the documents at Sl.No.l to 4 below.

PRIMARY DOCUMENTS

(1)   Electricity connection

(2)   Construction permission

(3)   Payment of property tax

(4)  Water supply connection

SUPPORTING DOCUMENTS

(5)   Household supply card

(6)  Telephone connection.

(h) Allotment of vacant surplus land not covered by any registered document of purchase shall not be considered under these orders.

(i) The registered transactions of purchase of excess lands that took place prior to the date of this G.O. alone will be considered for allotment under these orders.

(j) These orders apply for allotment of surplus land occupied by 3rd parties (other than land holder/declarant his successors in interest) alone. Orders regarding exemption of surplus lands occupied by the surplus land holder/declarant or his successors in interest are being issued separately.

(k) Allotment shall be free of cost up to the limits indicated in the table below,in case the occupier thereof is a person below poverty line, as explained below:

 

If the excess land occupied                    67 Sq.mts.(80 Sq. yards) fall in Municipal Corporation Areas.

If the excess land occupied                   84 sq.mts. (100 Sq. yards) falls in Municipalities

If the excess land falls in                       100 Sq.Mts.(120 Sq.yards) Panchayat Areas

 

Amount shall be collected for the land over and above the free limits, at the rates specified in Schedule-I when the total land in possession does not exceed 300 sq.mts. (Examples of calculation amount payable are shown in Schedule-I).

A person shall be considered to be one falling in the category of "below Poverty Line" if the aggregate annual income of such person and his/her spouse as the case may be, is Rs. 12,000/- per annum or below as on the date of this order. The income has to be declared by the occupier himself/ herself in the form of affidavit shown in Schedule-Ill to this order. It will be taken into consideration for deciding his/her case for allotment. If any information as to income or other matters given in such affidavit is found to be false, incorrect, incomplete or misleading, he/she shall be liable for such penalty or civil and criminal action as the Government may decide.

(1) A person occupying surplus land exceeding 300 Sq.mt will automatically be regarded as a person falling above poverty line irrespective of income.

(m) If the entire land is allotted free of cost to persons below poverty line, it shall be heritable but not alienable for a period of 10 years. This restriction does not apply if amount is paid for a portion or total extent of land occupied.

(n) Allotment of excess land free of cost to persons below poverty line shall be made in the name of adult female member of the family wherever practicable.

(o) The allotment of surplus land covered by structure under these orders is intended to regularise occupation of surplus land only and shall not be construed as approval or regularisation

of structures thereon. For regularisation of structures if required under the relevant rules the concerned local Authority shall be approached.

(p) The amount payable in respect of the excess land applied for allotment as per the rates shown in Schedule-I, shall be in lump sum by way of Demand Draft/Pay Order, Banker's Cheque drawn in favour of the Special Officer & Competent Authority, Urban Land Ceiling of the Urban Agglomeration concerned and the same shall be enclosed to the Application to be filed.

(q) the allotment of excess land made under these orders either on payment of amount or free of cost as the case may be does not require any registration under the Indian Registration Act, 1908 and no Stamp duty shall be payable under Indian Stamp Act 1899.

3.   The Government is of the view that there is need for minimising litigation and ensuring speedy settlement of cases under the Urban Land (Ceiling & Regulation) Act, 1976.  They have decided in public interest as a matter of policy, that the excess land determined equal to 300% of the Ceiling Limit of the respective Urban Agglomeration whether falling in core or peripheral areas held by each of the excess land holder as on the date of these orders or may be so declared hereafter shall be exempted under Section 20(1)(a) of the Act according to the following principles. This will be in addition to the general exemption granted already in the Government orders 1st and 2nd read above.

(d)   The excess lands covered by Appeals/W.P/W.As/SLPs/ or any other suit or proceedings including land grab cases filed by Government and pending before any Court or authority shall be considered for exemption under these orders only after (i) such cases are finally disposed of by such Court or authority and the Government or other party deciding not to carry such order in further appeal, or (ii) the Government deciding to withdraw litigation in any case.

(e)    The exemption upto the limit specified above shall be considered only when the land is in the possession of the excess land holder/or successors in interest with or without structures.

(f)    The exemption shall be conditional on payment of compensation to Government for the excess land exempted as per the rates indicated in Schedule-I to this order which are prevalent in the relevant financial year.

Their decision in this regard shall be final and shall not be questioned in any court of law.
